Title: I am
Written: December 16, 2012

I am THE man
do it ALL I can
FEAR itself saw me and ran
EXALTED I, riches & fortune I ban
DOCTRINE is true or not ask myself like a wise-man

While going through some of my old computer hard-drive, found this poem I wrote in 2005 while sitting bored in the Chemistry lecture hall at POLY.

Dark Black Eyes…
September 27th, 2005

Black dark eyes, I stared at them for I do not know how long.
I have seen the future in those dark black eyes,
Then I came back to reality at the blink of those dark black eyes.
Those killer eyes,
Love drench from them,
Happiness lives in them,
My heart reflected in them.
Just one look and my heart fills with a lifetime of happiness…
My heart beats fast as I stand in front of those black dark eyes.
They stare me in the face.
I still stand there,
Without a word,
Without a movement of my body,
In complete silence I stand,
Like a statue,
In front of these black dark eyes.
Closer, and closer,
I walk very slowly
As I stare at those dark black eyes.
My heart beats faster and faster,
And faster,
As I take every step.
Smile blooms in those dark black eyes,
Like a summer blooms roses red and white and pink and…
I can see the Taj Mahal reflecting on them,
The sweet water of Niagara Falls,
The romantic moon lights.
Those dark black eyes,
The first wonder of the universe,
But do they know it?

Usually all my poem are freestyle or something rhyming. For the poetry class [Eng 2003], professor Scanlan has asked us to write a limerick for extra credit. Here is my 1st attempt at writing limerick.

A shitty tale of a city boy walking down the alley
He goes by the name as Muhammad Ali
Tripped over dog shit while texting
Could have sworn he was sexting
“Shit!” first time for the day he said something verbally

Blind Moon
By Muhammad Ali
October 22, 2012

Love? Blinded by imperfections, infused with agony, tears turned into melting wax dripping down the chin, decimated by deceit, regardless of the fire that burns within, it is undeniable and impossible to simply “UnLove” someone! The unstoppable desire, the need, the want, the longing, that heartache, that heartbeat between the beats, that craving, the butterflies, these feelings, leading to the ultimate confusion of ‘Love’.. is it really love at the end? This struggle, this shadow of pain, how do you describe this feeling? How do you sleep? How do you perceive this world when your perception is betrayed? How do you learn to trust again? Love… love .. love !!!

Lunch time deja vu
By Muhammad Ali
November 17, 2008

the very thought of you warms my heart with smile
i sit down to write a poem yet i cannot rhyme
i am having the deja vu during lunch hours
of days that was so infused with love
even today the very thought of you warms my blood
beats my heart a thousands miles a second
only if you saw the passion in my eyes
the love i have for you will terminate all ill
the love i have for you will lift your wings high
only if you open your heart and see
agony is at my door step
came un-invited
have you got no shame?
the wings are getting heavy
i can’t hold this weight any longer
free my soul
free me from this tornment
only you have the power to
look deep inside…
why you ask? because no one else will love you more than I
close your eyes, in the depth of darkness
open your heart, in depth of rays of light you see in the darkness
set it free… let it be… or hold it tight and never let it go!
playing with food i shall not… lunch break is almost over
deja vu still in my plate… let it be, its okay
had it… have it… i can bear it as long as it makes you happy
and talking of happiness…
i still can not rhyme
food has no thyme
i squeezed in some lime
hmm.. so yum i give it a dime
